River rally held to raise money for Safe Haven

RHEA COUNTY, TN (WRCB) -

Organizers with "Safe Haven" offered a day of fun for a good cause.

The event kicked off with a golf tournament and ended on the river for a rally.

It's all to help children in Rhea County needing temporary placement from their unstable home environment.

"Safe Haven" can house up to 10 children at a time, ranging from ages eight to 14.

Saturday's festivities raised over $10,000 that will be used for  food and supplies to stock the home.

"What we are trying to provide is a care facility where kids can be housed here in Rhea County so they stay in an environment they are used to," says Gary Vennice.
